Castle of Kurds got bombed by Syria

From Wikipedia:
Krak des Chevaliers (French pronunciation: ​[kʁak de ʃəvaˈlje]) (Arabic: قلعة الحصن‎), also Crac des Chevaliers, is a Crusader castle in Syria and one of the most important preserved medieval castles in the world. The site was first inhabited in the 11th century by a settlement of Kurds; as a result it was known as Hisn al Akrad, meaning the "Castle of the Kurds"...Since 2006, the castles of Krak des Chevaliers and Qal'at Salah El-Din have been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Apparently, the castle is in under attack, this video was uploaded on Friday, July 12nd, 2013.

  1. I've seen this, next to all the civilian victims they've made, they're also destroying architectural heritage sites of utmost importancy. (the Citadel of Aleppo, partially built by Ayyubids has also sustain damage)

    Almost a thousand years this has survived, and now these savages have to ruin it.
